Spa Review: V Integrated Wellness, The Andaman, Langkawi

V Integrated Wellness is the award-winning wellness centre in The Andaman, Langkawi, with signature offerings such as V Botanical Spa, V Salon, V Fitness and V Healthy Cuisine. It is inspired by the "Tree of Life",  an ancient metaphor for interconnectedness of all life.




V Botanical Spa takes "being one with nature" to a whole new level, as it offers open-air spa villas perched on a hill with breathtaking views of the Andaman Sea. Each villa is tucked away in the lush tropical rainforest, hence providing guests with utmost privacy.




We were booked in for the V Signature Couples Romance Getaway package (RM888 per couple). You can choose from either the Ocean Awaken Delight (9am to 1pm) or Twilight Delight (6pm to 9pm), the difference being the times they are offered at. We went for the Ocean Awaken Delight, a morning spa and dine package, which include a 80-minutes Signature Kahuna Wave Massage and uplifting foot bath at V Botanical Spa, followed by a healthy 3-course V Healthy Cuisine lunch at The Restaurant.

Upon arrival at the Spa, we were presented with a welcome drink and cold towel. It has been a while since Hubby and I went on a couple spa, as our past few vacations have been with the kids and we would take turns to look after the kids while the other enjoys their spa time.


Five essential oils to choose from for our massage


Our therapists arrive and usher us to our spa villa. After changing into the sarongs provided, we were given a foot bath to scrub our feet. At the same time, we took a moment to enjoy the great views from our villa.

This was followed by the Kahuna Wave Massage; this massage mimics the waves of the ocean by using gentle rhythmical strokes and perpetual flowing motion to reach your core. Using mainly their fore arms for the massage, it was both invigorating and relaxing at the same time. We both enjoyed it thoroughly. The fantastic ambiance coupled with soothing sounds of the sea really adds to the whole experience.



After our massage session, we were led back to the reception area and served jamu, a traditional herbal medicinal drink. After a short rest back in our suite, we then went to Jentayu Lounge (as The Restaurant was under renovation during our visit) for our 3-course V Healthy Cuisine lunch.

V Healthy Cuisine showcases vegetarian, gluten free and macrobiotic menus using local produce. We started with healthy V Juices, made using a slow juicer. Hubby had the Steamed Asparagus salad with fava beans, tomato and rocket while I had the Japanese Rice Paper Roll for appetizers.




For mains, we both had the Char Grilled Tenderloin Steak with sauteed creamy spinach. The dish was supposed to come with polenta chips, but they swapped it with mashed polenta which we didn't care much for. However, it was still a very tasty dish overall - we enjoyed the steak and spinach combo very much.



Finally, for desserts, Hubby had the raw chocolate tart with cinnamon and yacon sauce while I had the cashew orange tart with orange spice white tea sorbet and agave.
